Foggy River by Marius Alexandru

The dreams flew shrouded in gray,
The mist settled like a quilt of smoke,
A magic veil that obscured the way
as the river whispered secrets as it spoke.

A mirror reflecting the unknown,
Like a cloak of mystery hiding the truth,
The fog disguises what it has shown;
the sad memories of my wild youth.

And so the foggy river flows and flows,
like a masterpiece of hidden art,
A perpetual riddle that only God knows,
that beats within the human, anxious heart.

Its water surface is smooth and still,
A canvas, waiting for God's pen and will.
